calculate power consumption constantly

Hi, 

 

I've got a nallatech p385a and I want to see how much power is being consumed during execution. So far the only available tool is "aocl diagnose", but if I run it when the opencl code is running, then the OpenCL host code will stop responding. And when I kill the host code, the whole system crashes. 

 

Now, how can I measure power consumption?

Nallatech provides an API based on MMD layer functions to read the power sensor on the board. Check section 7.5 of their "A10 BSP Reference Guide".
